A Ghanaian residing in the United Kingdom said making a family in England is a huge challenge.

When asked if he had a family of his own, Kenneth Nii Kotey Ashie said "acquiring that (a family) is a problem in England."

"I'm quite young. Most people my age don't want to settle down they just want to be outside. Just going out, having fun, getting drunk, partying, and just enjoying themselves," the 31-year-old said.

He explained that it is not difficult to find a girlfriend but rather a wife.

"You do find the right person, you start to build a relationship with them, then down the line, you tell them your standards of what you want. I don't want a woman that's for everyone outside. I want a woman obviously with class and a woman who can look after herself and can bring a family up. The straight away they start telling you, you are controlling."

Kenneth said he is taking his time because he does not want a broken family. As to whether he would agree for his family back in Ghana to search for a wife for him, the young man said that also comes with problems.
